gulls


Explanation:

If you mean the Latin (or scientific) names for gulls, there are many. For example, the Common Gull is Larus canus. The gull family is called Laridae. If you want the Latin name for one species of gull in particular, could you please say which one you need and I can try to help you.

I have included a few links, which I hope will be of use.

Herring gull

Larus argentatus is also a four-year gull, and nearly as large as the black-backed gull. As a breeding adult it has a white head and pale gray mantle, with yellow bill and a red spot under its bill. The herring gull's chicks may also peck at the red spot to stimulate the adult's feeding behavior. This may be the most familiar gull along the entire Atlantic coastline, and it is a familiar sight, gathered in great masses, at landfills and garbage dumps. The herring gull consumes eggs and chicks of other birds, insects, fish, mollusks, and refuse. It lays about three greenish-blue eggs during nesting, which hatch within 28 days.
